ONE SMALL STEP

Yes, they told her
they will induce our
baby.It was the high
blood pressure,
it seems
 
I skipped out 
of work early
at twelve. The
maternity unit was
just up the road.

She sat on a table,
legs swinging over the
edge. ‘That’s it,
no more after
this one’.

She looked shattered,
a ifs she’d run a
marathon. I peeked 
at our new arrival, she
was fine. I left

went back to work,
my lunch break,
you see. She says now,
each confinement
was easy. It seemed

different at the time,
that summer, Neil
Armstrong made
his ‘giant leap for
mankind’
